Upper Delaware River Fly Fishing Report

Delayed Start, Delayed Again

The Rainy weather and high water conditions continue. Over the last 2 days we received substantial rainfall again. This new batch of rainfall was completely different that what hit us last Sunday and Monday but the end result is nearly the same..

As I write this all of our rivers are once again blown out. The day did not start that way. We started a pretty normal day with several trips heading out. By mid day however all of our guides shortened their trips and pulled the boats.

Roscoe and the fly shop were pretty dead due to the rain and Easter. This afternoon Michele and I took a long ride throughout the Upper Delaware for the first time since getting back from Florida. The shots below show the current conditions. These are on the Beaverkill which has been pretty bad all week. Some of the other streams in the area are not so bad. We even found a few smaller off the radar streams to be fishable. One of these even had a few risers.
